iPhone Applecare $80$69 For an Extra Year, Says Pogue [UPDATED: Confirmed]

[UPDATED: Confirmed at $69.] Applecare is supposed to be available for the iPhone this month, and the price may be $80. Joel Johnson, walker-of-Gizmodo-halls-of-lore, noticed this statement in Pogue's Missing Manual PDF, on page 277: "The iPhone comes with a one-year warranty. If you buy an Applecare contract ($80) you're covered for a second year. If, during the coverage period, anything goes wrong that's not your fault, Apple will fix it for free." Apple neither confirms or denies this price, but The NYTimes tech columnist is pretty damn good as far as sources go. [UPDATE: Nope, this wasn't a final copy of the book, so it will have to be corrected at $69.][iPhone Missing Manual via JJ's Dethroner]
